Voting ends August 4.
We are proud to nominate a recent local project for the Integrity Windows and Doors Red Diamond Achiever Award program. Open to builders, remodelers and architects, this national award program is judged based on photos and level of execution in creativity, market appeal and why Integrity’s window and door products were chosen for the project.
A charming bungalow located just off Bardstown Road was nominated for the award competition. Remodeled by Brad Abell of Vincent Abell Contracting, and part of the 2013 Tour of Remodeled Homes, the home is also the residence of Brad and his wife, Amber.
Check out the Integrity Red Diamond Achiever Award nomination:
As part of the Millennial generation and willing adopters of leading edge technology, Brad and Amber found that Integrity windows offered the right technology (Ultrex fiberglass) at the right price to give them great value.
The Integrity Wood/Ultrex windows fit beautifully with the bungalow-style home and surrounding houses in the area from a historic and architectural standpoint. Wood interiors helped maintain the historic look inside the home while the Ultrex fiberglass exterior provided durability with low maintenance concerns.
Custom Tailored For Each Opening
Awning and casement windows were selected over double-hung windows in some openings for added usability and space conservation. For instance, the two windows on either side of the fireplace were originally double-hung, but were converted to awning windows to allow space for the built-in bookcases. This change enhanced the fireplace area, maintained the architectural style with the prairie grilles and allowed plenty of natural light and breezes for the room.
Design Ideas On A Budget
Don Erickson, sales consultant with Door Store and Windows provided ideas to create more privacy since the home is situated very close to one neighboring home. The dining room awning windows were located at a position high on the wall to maintain privacy while allowing plenty of light and ventilation. Every window in the home was replaced; so finding a product that was a good value was important to keeping the project within the budget of the newlywed owners.
